The New York State STEM Education Collaborative Institute will be held July 12-14 at Alfred State SUNY College of Technology. This year's theme is "STEM: Building Futures from Pre-K to Careers."
The institute is seeking presenters for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects for all learning levels (K-20). Conference presenters will be able to attend the two-day institute at a reduced rate.
Last year's sessions included a wide variety of topics from project-based learning to video game design to forensic science education. Other presenters offered practical tips on how to run a robotics competition or take part in Future City Competitions.
The goal is to inspire educators to integrate STEM learning and give students hands-on knowledge to help them solve real-world problems. The institute is co-sponsored by NYSUT, the New York State Technology and Engineering Education Association, the Association of Mathematics Teachers of New York State, the Science Teachers Association of New York and the New York State Society of Professional Engineers.
The deadline for presenters to submit proposals is Feb. 27. For more information about presenting or registering for the conference, go to www.nysstemeducation.org.
